“The Three Building Blocks” is a symbolic analysis of how a relationship develops. It discusses the symbiotic process of sharing a persona and flooding oneself with the other. This film is the result of a deep investigation into the directors’ relationship as a romantic couple. Fernanda Pompermayer and Miguel Thomé described the making of this film as an “intense and deeply personal project”. Really lovely cinematography and overall art direction here.
